St John’s Regional College nominated seven Yr 12 VCE students for this award.

In late November we received confirmation that Linh Nguyen CO3 had been successful as one of only three students in the Dandenong region to be a named a finalist for the Frank Facey Award.

We are thrilled to announce to the College community that on Friday 4th December (via zoom) Linh was announced the winner of this prestigious award and presented with a $1500 cheque. Linh is hoping to study an International Business Degree next year, and this sponsorship will help go towards course fees and textbooks. 

Congratulations Linh, you are truly a worthy recipient of this Frank Facey Award.
